Wild West Carnival

Well considering the current state of country music I'm pretty excited to see what answer he comes up with LOL.

According to Rolling Stones, American music enthusiast Ken Burns, who has made multi-part documentaries on genres such as the blues and jazz, has begun work on a new PBS series about country music. According to the Associated Press, the series will attempt to answer the question "What is country music?" It will trace the careers of the Carter family, Jimmie Rodgers, Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and more. Country fans will have to be patient, though: PBS won't broadcast the series until 2018.

2018? Do you know how much can change between then and now? I mean think back 4 years ago…'The House That Built Me' was ranked at # 1. Let that sink in for a second…
